Patient One cognitive support supplements are designed to optimize multiple aspects of cognitive health by promoting cerebral blood flow, neutralizing free radicals in the brain, energizing brain cells and supporting production of neurotransmitters. Our cognitive support MediNutritionals include key phospholipid building blocks for the formation of healthy new brain cells.
Support for mental acuity, focus and memory performance
Patient One Cogni-Sharp™ provides a complementary blend of mushrooms and herbs that support focus, mental acuity and brain function at all ages.
This formula promotes sharp cognition, supporting concentration and attention span, addressing memory difficulties and mild forgetfulness, and promoting a healthy mood.
Brain Performance Blend:
Our comprehensive blend featuring mushrooms Cordyceps and Lion’s mane, along with brain-supporting botanicals Ginkgo biloba, Gotu kola, Bacopa monnieri, Rhodiola, Rosemary and Turmeric, supports healthy neurological function and can help promote a clear mind and normal memory.
The herbal extracts in Cogni-Sharp are widely used in integrative medicine to assist with cognitive function. Bacopa monnieri has shown potent activity at the site of human serotonin (5HT-1a) receptors and has been shown to promote various aspects of cognitive performance, information processing, memory and mood. It may help address fuzzy thinking and forgetfulness.
Gotu kola and ginkgo biloba help to support healthy production of neurotransmitters which contribute to normal mood. Gotu kola has been used to support healthy circulation in the brain. Likewise, ginkgo promotes enhanced cerebral blood flow and healthy red blood cell and platelet function in the brain. It is a free radical scavenger that provides antioxidant defense.
Curcuminoids (from turmeric) and rosemary are also included for their antioxidant properties. Turmeric curcumin helps protect neurons from oxidative stress and supports healthy vascular tissue in the brain. Rosemary diterpenes have also been shown to inhibit neuronal cell death.
Rhodiola is a brain adaptogen that helps balance the brain chemicals serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine without causing drowsiness or fatigue. It helps moderate occasional mental and physical stress, promoting a healthy mood. Rhodiola supports learning, focus and memory.
Lion’s mane, a nootropic mushroom traditionally used to support nervous system health, promotes mental clarity, focus, and memory.
